My answer to this is usually "it depends - what does being rich* mean to you? Are you open to being rich in many ways?"
We all come to Earth with different skills and opportunities to earn income, which are highlighted in our soul contract (something I cover in your individual psychic reading).
Not everyone is here to get rich through physical labour (trading time for money). Some people will inherit wealth, other people might earn it through passive income or receiving help from their spouse or kids.
In Chinese face reading they say that the broader the wings of your nose, the more likely you are to receive money from many sources. Someone with a narrow nose usually receives the bulk of their money from a job. Your nose may even change over time as your work varies.
Analysis aside, my take is that as long as you are healthy you don't need to stress about money. I mean healthy in the broadest way - when you have a meditation practice, eat well, sleep enough, enjoy your work and have loved ones around you, your need for money as a form of significance will subside. There will always be someone who can help you when you need assistance.
On the other hand, if you are disconnected from your spiritual guidance and the people around you, eat junk, hardly sleep and hate your job then no wonder you stress about finances. You probably need money to splurge so that you can distract yourself from all that pain in your core (and save for the medical expenses that may come up once your body hits its limit).
I first came across this theory in one of Louise Hay's books, where she made the connection between overspending and feeling off track in life. It really made sense to me because in the end, your money is your life energy. The way you spend it shows me how comfortable you are with being alive.
People overspend when they take their lives for granted. People spend wisely when they realise life is precious. People penny pinch when they haven't faced their fears of death. (If you feel like this, read Journey of Souls for insight into life between lives and life after death).
So how does getting enough sleep make you rich? Well, most people people want to be rich so they can take more holidays, enjoy life and explore their interests, right?
SO...if you give yourself enough sleep:
-you'll get to do more astral travelling (that counts as a holiday doesn't it? :D)
-you'll be more productive at work (what takes a tired person 8 hours to complete you may finish in an hour) - giving you more opportunity to take breaks. You'll also be less prone to working overtime, which just leaves you more stressed.
-you're sending a sign to the Universe that you love and respect your body (resulting in love coming back at you in the form of healthy relationships)
-you'll receive nightly input from your Soul, allowing you to intuit what's coming up for you in life and what decisions to make. It is only during sleep and meditation that your Soul can recharge your 'spirits', so if you cut back on these activities you'll often end up feeling depressed and left out in life.
Not only that, sleep increases your creativity, which is great because it helps you to think like a genius - as Einstein said, "You can never solve a problem on the level on which it was created."
So next time you have a conflict to solve, try going to bed at 9pm and letting your Soul bring you the answers.
According to Chinese Medicine and books such as The Perfect Day Plan, our decision-making abilities are massively enhanced if we're in bed by at least 11pm each night. Be sure to record your dreams in the morning!
Finally, getting enough sleep is essential because it gives you the energy to move forwards in life. When we are tired, we stay put because it's too much effort to change our mindset/ career/ relationship etc. Being rested gives us the power we need to overcome our fears and start afresh in any area of life.
If you're going on a long journey, it's better to set off with a full fuel tank...
Similarly, if you're going through a lot in life, you need your sleep tank at 100% so that you don't make impulsive decisions. Disasters such as Chernobyl and many car accidents have been blamed on sleep deprivation, so please don't become another zombie or statistic.
Sleep is your invisible route to wealth. It leaves you feeling 'rich' with time. Prioritising rest it will give you a sense of freedom and inner peace that no two week holiday could ever buy.
So next time you feel like staying up late, consider the merit of this Workaholics Anonymous saying..."Rest is the best reward I can give myself" (not insomnia!) :D
What happens if you can't get to sleep or stay asleep? You may need help with your 'sleep hygiene'...I explain more in a companion article on how to get a great sleep - check it out here
Til then - happy napping!
